up. and the faternity is pursuing legal action against rolling stone. who can blame them? they were described as a den of unec witty of a horrific attack. >> they have a chance and they were defamed. the only thing worse than being raped is to lie about being raped. >> it was irresponsible journalism and you can't do that without being punished. >> and the only thing. she's right. legally they have a case. one of the defenses to defamation is truth. if you am looking into the

equation is when these countries get a nuclear weapon. and then how we approach the countries,s inially changes. >> the former advisor to the u.n. i would like to drill down on once in a lifetime opportunity. that is like giving it a try. we'll never get that chance again. to that you say what? >> this is a problem of the obama administration, they ignore history. it would be one thing if we had not tried to engage with the iranians before or multiple un resolutions demanding they do certain things. this deal hinges on inspections and vigorous inspections as the president said in the 45 minute interview. what he ignores and john kerry
and wendy sherman ignores. they can't get in with inspections now. and you worked in the u.n. for many years under different administrations and i would like to ask you about that. we need to be very clear about the inspectors have they ever had comb plete access in iran to inspect what is happening in the country? >> no they have tried and we had disputes and the u.n. asked them to go after special sites and investigate. what has happen the iranians say no. and this is intrusive thaw say. and the dispute goes back to the

they were put in place after wrestling the russians to do this. you can't snap those back. you think the russians are going to say let's try them again? >> we did a battle with the russians and got them to pass six resolutions. you will not snap them back. if you use the phrase snap that back is embarrassing and has no idea. >> we hear comparisons to north korea. and wese playedev itopñ throug2fpeq day on fox news. xdwh i want to play from another president when it comes to a nuclear deal with a rogue nation. this is president clinton. >> this is a good deal for the united states. north korea will freeze and dismantle the nuclear programs. south korea and other allies will be protected and entire
